Useful Notes About FM Broadcasting
FM5 is FCC SDoC approved (Supplier Declaration of Conformity Title 47, 2.906). It can be turned down to 1 watt and if used with the antenna included, will comply with Part 15 transmission requirements. Please be aware that the FCC requires Part 15 Transmitters to be approved by the FCC. This transmitter does NOT have Part 15 approval and could be subject to heavy FCC fines for operating without a license. If using above 1 watt, the FCC requires either a STA (Special Temporary Authorization) or the normal FM broadcast license.
If using to transmit and comply with Part 15 requirements, the customer must make sure that they are using a frequency that is open. Do NOT use adjacent to another current FM frequency in use because it could easily interfere. It is recommended that the customer listen to the open frequency on the outskirts of where they plan to broadcast and then listen again when transmitting to be sure their transmission is not outside the 250 μV/m at 3 m required for Part 15. This transmitter will allow the customer to turn down the power to less than 1 watt in case it is needed.
